I know the sales are supposed to have started early, but Woolworth's on sale for £1 is surely taking it a bit far

Buy Shares? but not the company. The only way is up? The shares are cheaper!

but it can save a company

back in the 80's a factory in our town that made jam, was brought by robinsons for £1, they took on the debts as well

Today robersons no longer own the company but the company is still up and running, no longer making jam but processing canned veg and producing fruit juice drinks the factory expanded both at it's main site and taking over another large site within the town...

Haggle maybe you can buy them for 75p

Me too.

The trouble is that nearly everything in Woolworths is also sold by the supermarkets, and one-stop shopping with easy parking is now what most, including me, look for.

I was in Woolworths a few days ago trying to buy 2 games machines.

Customer service was awful. Some lady behind the media till shrugged her shoulders when I asked about bundled games. The next guy I saw did the same thing and said there isn't any.

They weren't keen to sell so I wasn't keen to buy.

I went to Argos and got the PS2 for £94.99 with singstar disney (19.99), microphones (19.99)free. I also bought a Nintendo DS bundle for £119, so there's over £200 lost because 2 people shrugged their shoulders.

I went in Woolworths yesterday, while my wife joined the scrum at M&S.

It was tranquil by comparison...........not a good sign for a retailer that makes all it's profit in the last few weeks up to Christmas.

The board did turn down a £50 million offer a few months back. The same guy can now save £499,999,999!

Whoops, got carried away. That should read £49,999,999, but what's a few million between friends?
